Endoscope procedure

Recommended Posts

Dr.Okun I am writing because I remember in the past there seemed to be a preference for certain sedatives for PD patients.  I was offered demerol-versed or proprofol.  I chose proprofol(sp) until I found out it was a general anesthetic.  The last time I had demerol-versed, I couldn't stand and was off balance most the day from the morning procedure.  Now I'm wondering if the proprofol is OK.  I had it once before and woke up alert.  What is recommended for PD?  I only take sinemet and carbidopa to help with stomach issues.

Thank you very much!

We try not to use any of these drugs but in circumstances when we do use them, a little propofol if properly monitored or versed seems to be a good option.  In our practice we do not use demerol.
